Kentron Selects Sensorlink's Corrosion Monitoring Solutions

Sensorlink, a leading provider of corrosion management solutions to the oil and gas industry, has entered into an agent agreement with Kentron Systems Inc. in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Kentron Systems will sell and distribute Sensorlink's products for corrosion monitoring of pipelines and processing plants throughout Canada. Kentron is the first agent that Sensorlink has appointed to sell its products overseas.

"We are very happy to enter into this agreement with Kentron Systems in Canada. It is well established, and has a good reputation in Canada, which is a market that we feel offers a large potential for pipeline corrosion and erosion monitoring," said Kenneth Jekteberg, Managing Director of Sensorlink. "Currently Sensorlink's products are being used throughout the North Sea. This agency appointment is part of a strategic plan to achieve greater market penetration both onshore and subsea," he added.

Corrosion Monitoring Plays Vital Role in Verifying Pipeline Integrity

Industry-wide regulations stipulate that operators must comply with the increased demand for transportation of oil and gas in a safe and environmentally sound manner. As a result, pipeline operators are required to verify the integrity of their pipelines at all times. A corrosion monitoring system can play a vital role in a pipeline integrity management program by providing detailed and reliable information on pipeline status.

"Sensorlink's products will blend nicely with the rest of our portfolio within instrumentation products for the oil and gas industry," said Joe Schuler, President of Kentron. "This gives us the opportunity to better assist our clients in meeting their requirements for control of asset integrity and for cost-effective pipeline operations," he added.
